Exclusive: on Contributing Music to The Turning 11, Finn Wolfhard

Exclusive: Finn Wolfhard on Contributing Music to The Turning Soundtrack

Coming Soon.net recently talked to The Turning celebrity Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) about the horror film and he confirmed his band The Aubreys will be featured on the horror movie’s soundtrack. The latest adaptation of Henry James’ book The Turning of the Screw, is a moody and evocative’90’s set film with original music for the feature, which is now playing in theaters.

“We did not really know that we were doing it before a few months before the movie was going to come out,” Wolfhard shared, “We had a really fun time doing it as a quick thing. We had a lot of fun doing it.”

On the 90’s inspiration behind the Aubreys track, the star said:“We did a lot of grunge-like Mudhoney and Nirvana. And also there is a man –Jay Reatard, we listen to lots of his band.”

“We recorded and wrote a song with them,” said manufacturer Lawrence Rothman, “All the tunes on the soundtrack are first music for the film. The soundtracks of classic 90 inspired us like Lost Highway and Twin Peaks. We wanted the music to be original to just the film.”

Director Floria Sigismondi added, “We really created our version of the’90s and did it from scratch, It’s only the subtle things, well put together that create a world. I wanted to put a fresh spin. Really owning the air and creating that from scratch.”

Based on Henry James’s famous novella The Turn of the Screw (a supply of several movie adaptations, including The Innocents), the story revolves around a young woman (Mackenzie Davis) who becomes the grandma of two orphans who live in a haunted country mansion. The movie stars Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), and Brooklynn Prince (The Florida Project).

If this film sounds familiar, that’s because it was intended to be taken in 2017 on a $17 million dollar budget as Haunted under director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks LaterIntruders) for DreamWorks Pictures, and set to star Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) and Alfre Woodard (Captain America: Civil War). Based on a script by Chad and Carey Hayes (The Conjuring), Haunted went through a page-one rewrite by Scott Z. Burns (The Bourne UltimatumSide Effects) that caused such seismic changes in the fabric of this narrative (altering characters, action, even the title) that it no longer resembled the job the studio signed on to make. On the job, five weeks producer Steven Spielberg personally pulled the plug in September of 2016.  Execs and spielberg decided the best course of action was to fire Fresnadillo and Burns, going back to the Hayes Brothers’ script seeking to start fresh on development, despite $5 million having been spent.

This new version of Haunted, now titled The Turning, is directed by Floria Sigismondi, who helmed 2010’s Joan Jett biopic The Runaways as well as episodes of Hemlock GroveDaredevil and American Gods. Carey and Chad Hayes writes the film.  Scott Bernstein (Straight Outta Compton) and Roy Lee (IT) produce.

  1. God Ben Schwartz is SOOO much better than Roger Craig Smith. He actually sounds like an energetic 15 year old instead of a 30 something used-to-be-cool ex-skater dude. I really hope he takes over as Sonic’s universal English VA in the next game.

  2. the people who complained about the sonic redesign should go watch the movie so all the hard work that went into the redesign isnt a waste of money

  3. For the past 10 times I’ve watched this, I thought Sonic was saying "Saltwater stinks" when I realized just now that he’s saying "Saltwater stings". I feel like an idiot.
